Exchange and Summer Programs
After you have been nominated to participate in a study abroad program, you'll need to apply directly to your host institution. Your post-nomination email will instruct you how to do that.
When applying to the host institution, you will most likely have to submit additional supporting documentation and/or a list of courses you are interested in taking abroad. This course list is not a formal registration – it’s normally used to determine which faculty or department you should be admitted into. Course registration at the host institution is often completed once you arrive.
Acceptance by Host Institution
It can take several weeks or months to receive admission from the host institution, depending on the program start date and the admission process.
Admissions by host institutions normally occur during the following timelines:
> mid – late April for a Spring start
> May – June for a Summer start
> July – August for a Fall start
> November – January for a Winter start
If successful, the host institution will send a formal acceptance letter by post or email, either to the Education Abroad Program office, which we will forward to you, or directly to you. If you receive acceptance directly, you must send us a copy of the letter or email.
The host institution has the final say on admission. You must receive formal acceptance from the host institution before you are permitted to go abroad.
TIP: Do not make travel arrangements until you have been admitted to the host institution and until you know important dates and deadlines (e.g. orientation).
